Land Rover Dealerships generally aren't what they used to be a decade or two ago, especially for enthusiasts of the iconic British brand. Nine times out of ten you're more likely to encounter a Range Rover on 24's with a Strut grill on display rather than a heritage mode such as a Defender, Series, or even a Discovery. However, tucked into various places around the United States, there are still a few Land Rover Dealerships that are filled with off-road enthusiasts just like us who are keeping the spirit of the brand alive by actually taking customers on the adventures that their vehicles were built for. Land Rover Las Vegas is one of those Dealerships, and between their Defender 130, Series I, and Camel Trophy Discovery—and the many other modified Land Rover vehicles floating around the property—it's quite apparent that they're not your usual dealership.
